Don't poke the bear!

Especially not this one.

A black bear at Glacier National Park in Montana has become an internet star after webcam footage of it looking in bad need of a cup of java was posted on the park service's Facebook page.

The groggy mammal looks out from its den, in the hole of a tree, as a bird approaches. At one point, it lays its head on the trunk's knothole and seems barely able to keep its eyes open.

Just last week, park employees installed webcams at 13 locations within the 1,583-square miles of wildness in Montana's Rocky Mountains. The bear cam is 357 feet away from the bruin's hibernating home, but has a 30x optimal zoom that captures the bear in extreme close-up.

Bears in Montana's Glacier National Park are beginning to wake from hibernation , and people have been able to watch along! Webcam video posted to Facebook Thursday by the National Park Service shows a black bear poking its head out from a tree as it awakes.

A black bear slowly emerges from its den in a cottonwood tree in Glacier National Park . And while bears do not urinate during their months of hibernation , their bodies show no buildup of urea, a toxic byproduct of protein metabolism normally eliminated by the kidneys.

"It's a very popular bear," park spokeswoman Lauren Alley told InsideEdition on Monday.  The video has been viewed tens of thousands of times.

Waking from hibernation is a process that can take several weeks, Alley said, with bears seeming very groggy. After up to seven months of deep sleep, during which bears neither eat, nor drink, nor expel waste, the animals are very hungry when fully awake.

And they often are very grumpy.

So park rangers also wanted to take the opportunity to remind folks who live in bear country to carry bear spray and make a lot of noise when out walking. Residents should also keep their trash and bird feeders indoors until late spring or early summer.

Bear spray is really a big can of pepper spray, Alley said. "It sends them running," she said. If you should happen upon a groggy, grumpy bear that comes walking toward you, "spray a big cloud of it between you and the bear," she advised.
